This is Napol and this is my first official post on my own blog. I am in the Helena, MT airport right now watching a River Runs Through It (It was filmed in Montana if you are wondering why) dreaming of someday getting a chance to raise a family here. False. I am not doing this at all. I am actually in the airport staring at the runway where I think I am catching a flight on the Wright Bros. first plane. The airport is scary small and the planes are smaller. I am not sure why people would ever move to Montana. Some say the view is pretty nice, but I would rather be around a little more civilization.
I met the local Whirlpool rep today and he has lived in Montana for 30 years. I was telling him how everyone has told me to watch out for wildlife while I am driving. He told me he has hit 11 animals over the past 7 years. 9 deer, 1 black bear (yes I said a black bear) and one cow! Yes it is true a cow was roaming free in a road and he hit it. This isn’t even the best part. He told me in Montana they have a law that if you hit a farm animal on a local road, you have to pay the farmer for that farm animal. I asked him how much he had to pay and he said he drove off but the police found him. The farmer charged him $680 for the cow! The moral of the story is watch out for cow, they cost a lot. Fact: I am not a big fan of Montana.
